This sucka is AWESOME now. The key to using it is to not let your opponent know you have it until it's too late for them. It kills almost instantly, so the best way to use it is to just swing it back and forth like a sword. Against AIs, nothing can stop you when you have a Ramdrill. Against humans - try to go after people with weapons that don't have a lot of kick, or try to jump over them and attack from behind. If you can get on top of a hill, you have nothing to fear but cruise missles and R-Grenades. When playing as a team, follow a teammate around when you have a 'drill. That way the enemy will be busy shooting at them while you run straight into them spinning the drill. The most important tactic for the ramdrill is stealth, though. The more distracted your target is, the better

Nah. As long as you watch out for people using it, it's not too dangerous. But in a big fight, who has time to watch their back?

I think the ramdrill is a lot more fun now - before it was almost useless because it took too long to kill...

Yeah, but let's rain on the brownie points for anyone who could use it effectively... no?

On the Ramp, it was pretty good for holding the top of the ramp - until someone got R-Grenades.

A2597 - you don't remember the REALLY useless ramdrill. That was back in the betas about a year ago. It was about half the length and 1/3rd the damage. Couldn't kill a thing with it
